Turn on FIreFox to enable keeping passwords

Posted

I reinstalled FireFox. Previously, I was prompted to remember passwords. Now, I am no longer prompted and I must sign in to FireFox evertime I open the brower. I checked the options page but the radio button on the security tab for "Remember Passwords for Sites" is greyed out and not accessible.

How do I turn on the "Remember Passwords for Sites" feature.

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues.


You are asked for a password when you start Firefox? Or later?

History can be removed or not recorded several ways;

  • 1) Running Firefox in Private Mode (nothing is recorded)
  • 2) Privacy settings
    (Type about:preferences#privacy<enter> in the address bar.)
  • 3) Many disk cleaners and anti-virus type programs can remove data from browsers. Open their settings and have them leave the browsers alone.
  • 4) Mal-ware.

Make sure that you do not run Firefox in permanent Private Browsing mode (Never remember history).

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history"
  • Deselect: [ ] "Always use Private Browsing mode"
